Middle Notes

Make up the majority of essential oils and take a little bit of time to establish their scent.  They are generally spicy, herbs/grass or floral oils.

Base Notes

Are generally heaviest and take the longest to evaporate.  Often, they are thicker in texture especially compared to top note citrus oils.  They are generally earthy or woody oils although some deep florals like jasmine are included as well!
